Pretentious and tedious, this film tries so hard to be hip it might as well have prohibited any viewing except on the 16 GB iPhone.

Morgen's very self-conscious direction provides no context for the events of the film leaving most viewers scratching their heads and unmoved. This lack of background does a disservice to his heroes by not showing the tiniest bit of the reasoning and provocation for their actions which would've humanized them. Instead, they come across as immature pranksters. When the climax of the film comes, the protesters being throttled by the police, all Morgen can do to try and make you feel something is crank up the score which just feels manipulative and diminishes the emotions that could've been felt. A perfect example of style over substance. Is it that hard to achieve both? Expand
